  • Why are they called "Amasia Landscape"?
  • I'm not really sure, but I mentioned a few theories in their Profile section.

  • Is anyone in Amasia Landscape married, or dating right now?
  • I'm not really sure, because there's so little information about the band. In fact, I'm not even 100% sure how many people are in Amasia Landscape! I'm pretty sure that Akico, Dai Nagao, Mio Aoyama and lanka (or "ranka") are in the group...but I'm not sure if there are more.

  • What happened to Amasia Landscape?
  • I'm not really sure what happened; they just stopped making music after "Flower Crown" was released. Maybe they weren't selling enough CDs, so avex disbanded them? ;__;

    As for the members of the group, Dai Nagao is composing songs for other artists and Mio Aoyama still writes lyrics for other artists. I'm not sure what happened to ranka (or "lanka"; I'm not sure how their name was spelled).

    Akico ended up in another group called Mother Ninja. This group had 3 people. (^^) The other 2 members are from popular avex groups: there's motsu (a member of m.o.v.e., a popular techno/dance group) and ## (a member of AAA). But unfortunately I haven't heard a lot about this group, and I don't think they're very active either.

    I kinda feel bad for Akico; she really does have a nice voice but she isn't getting the exposure she deserves. =(

  • Where can I buy Amasia Landscape merchandise?
  • There are tons of online stores that sell their merchandise. But I highly recommend YesAsia (their prices are low, their selection is large, and the shipping costs are low for people outside of Asia). You can also try CDJapan, Amazon and iTunes. If you want used items, there's an area in DAIForum called Aisle 3. Be sure to check it out! You can also go to eBay for used merchandise.

  • Where can I download [insert song here]?
  • I highly recommend you buy their CDs. However, you can sample their songs (and download several songs, in low-quality WMA format) on this site.

  • Why don't you have a picture gallery here?
  • There are very few pictures for Amasia Landscape, probably because they aren't very well known. =(

    If I had more pictures to share, I would (and I normally don't post pictures on this site because you can usually find plenty of them with Google Images).

  • Why do you post WMAs on this site?
  • I want people to hear the full songs, because sometimes the MP3 samples don't capture the beauty of the full song.

    But I also want people to buy the actual CDs, which is why:

    1. I will never post every song they've made.
    2. I will never post new songs.
    3. I only post low-quality songs on the site. WMAs sound "less fuzzy" than low-quality MP3s (and I do want you to hear the song as best as possible). Plus WMAs are usually a bit smaller in size, which is why I use this format.
    4. I know people might not have a lot of money, so I mentioned a lot of low-cost shopping methods...including YesAsia and used CD sites (like eBay).
    I buy CDs, and you should too. We need to support these artists; otherwise they won't continue to make music. Amasia Landscape might make a comeback if people buy more of their CDs!
